'Creepers'. That's what they call themselves. Urban explorers who illegally enter sealed buildings - hotels, offices, department stores - many of which have been abandoned for years. Exploring one is like going into a time capsule. Mystery and danger add to the adrenaline rush, as the building's secrets are unveiled. One night in New Jersey, a group of creepers enters the Paragon, a hotel designed and built during the glory days of Asbury Park by a reclusive millionaire. The magnificent structure, which foreshadowed the beauties of Art Deco architecture, is now a decrepit, boarded-up edifice marked for demolition. But the Paragon has a disturbing history, and soon after the group enters it becomes clear that this decaying seven-story building holds more secrets than they could have imagined in their worst nightmares. Danger, terror and death wait for them in a place ravaged by time and redolent of evil
